Zoning

The Zoning By-law is set by policies in the Town's Official Plan. The By-law divides the Town into zones, each for specific uses. The By-law regulates:

  • Land use
  • Building location on a property
  • The height, bulk, location, size, floor area, space and use of buildings and structures
  • Parking and loading facilities

In certain situations, the Zoning By-law also requires compliance with Minimum Distance Separation (MDS) Formulae which mitigates odour between agricultural and non-agricultural uses.

Amending the Zoning By-law

Sometimes it's not possible to meet all of the Zoning By-law requirements. You can change your plans to meet the requirements, or apply for a preliminary meeting to discuss your proposal. If you can't meet the Zoning By-law you may need to apply for either a Zoning By-law Amendment or a Minor Variance application. 

Request a compliance letter

A compliance letter can be used for:

  • Written confirmation of the Official Plan designation and Zoning of a property
  • Establishing an Inspection Station
  • Establishing a Propane Cylinder Exchange program
  • Establishing a Day Nursery
  • Establishing a Before/After School Program

Request a compliance Letter.

Request a zoning certificate

You can apply to have your zoning reviewed (including uses and buildings/structures) to see whether it complies. A Zoning Certificate may be requested for any reason, including:

  • To have a zoning review done before you submit a planning application
  • For a proposed Motor Vehicles Sales (OMVIC)
  • For a proposed propane distribution centre
  • For a proposed day nursery

Request a Zoning Certificate Application.

Request a legal non-conforming use

A legal non-conforming use is a use which was legally established under the Zoning By-law in effect at the time the use began but which is not currently permitted. You can apply to have a use recognized as a legal non-conforming use so long as the original use has continued uninterrupted at that location until today.
